MEGATRENDS: How to Include Climate Change In Your Planning

It is easy to ignore small changes in a long-term trend. But these small changes add up to big changes - creating a "punctuated equilibrium" where the entire marketplace shifts.  Too often we become accustomed to our surroundings, and we miss the small evolutionary changes. We fail to see how trends add up, creating a major shift.  There is also a tendency to omit planning for changes we cannot control.  We assume the future will look like the past, when even the "now" doesn't look like the past.

Climate change has already impacted the entire planet, and thus every business. Most businesses have taken steps to mitigate the change - attempting to defend the old business in the face of change.  But the warming planet will continue for at least 20 years, that's a proven trend.  This will impact how, and where, we work and live. Those who plan for new climate impacts will be more successful.  This podcast covers factors every business should consider as it plans for ongoing climate change.

  • Are you tracking trends over time so small changes become more visible?
  • Have you developed scenarios for how mega-trends could create a catastrophic event to your business?
  • Have you identified the opportunities, as well as the threats, that are being created by mega-trends?

    I find these weekly podcasts to be super inspirational, they seem to always motivate me to look at my purpose. Matt not only brings in his personal life experiences but he delivers them in such a way that they are relatable.
